8015. Gansevoort


  1. Harmen Harmense Van Gansevoort (d. 1710) m. Maria Leendertse Conyn (b. 1643); Beverwyck, Albany, N. Y.,
  2. Philip Philipse (d. aft. 1689) m. Elizabeth Gansevoort (d. aft. 1686); Schenectady, N. Y.


John Calder Pearson, The Cromwell and Lewis Families of the Mohawk Valley, New York Genealogical and Biographical Record 41 (1910): 20-7, at 20 n. *, presents Elizabeth as a probable daughter of Harmen and Maria. Other sources omit Elizabeth from the list of Harmen’s children, some of whom began appearing only a decade before Elizabeth’s. See, for example, Jonathan Pearson, Contributions to the History of the Ancient Dutch Families of Albany, New York Genealogical and Biographical Record 3 (1872): 81-5, at 84). Nevertheless, John Calder Pearson’s reconstruction is widely accepted, as by Jonathan Pearson, Contributions for the Genealogy of the Descendants of the First Settlers of the Patent and City of Schenectady, from 1662 to 1800 (1873; reprint, Baltimore: Genealogical Publishing Co., 1976), 141.
